31 Days to Great Sex : A review and a giveaway


Good morning, friends and sisters! Today I am honored to be sharing the ebook with you “31 Days to Great Sex” by Sheila Wray Gregoire. Sheila has been an encouragement to me as I have started this blogging journey, and her ministry reaches thousands of women needing wisdom.

While I didn’t get a chance to follow Sheila’s original “29 Days” on her blog, I was able to read through her book over the last few weeks and I wanted to give my perspective as a higher drive wife. 31 Days to Great Sex, while written primarily to marriages where the husband is the higher drive, does do a good job of noting that this isn’t always the case. Days 1-8 Sheila writes about how to turn sex into something positive; days 9-12 she writes about emotional intimacy; days 13-20 is about physical intimacy and days 21-25 she tackles the importance of spiritual intimacy. She ends with writing about how to keep the momentum going on days 26-31.

As I read through the book, there were several days that were especially challenging and thought-provoking. On day 3 Sheila discusses ideas about beauty, and even though I am a higher drive wife I still found myself relating to her words about seeing myself as God sees me. Day 8 is about hitting the reset button on your sex life, which holds a lot of truth and insight for those of us who have had sexual hurt in the past. Finally, there was so much to glean from her “time out” chapters, where she addresses issues regarding trusting in God and finding true life.

If you are a woman who does not have a higher drive, I highly encourage you to get this book and work through it – it will be life and health to your marriage. If you are a higher drive wife with a husband who is willing to explore healthy sexuality with you, then this book would be a great resource for you to both grow together. You may have to switch gender terms on some of the days, but there is still a lot of great information reagarding how men and women are made. If all marriages were able to live according to the truth of sexual freedom found on her pages then the world would be a much happier and healthier place. Today may be a great time to start your marriage down that road.
